Introducing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0!

Recommended Posts

The new version of Maywarebytes Anti-Malware UI is terrible. From an IT perspective, It looks like every fake, spammy "antivirus" programs out there. Please change this and go back to the professional look you used to have.

I'm an old member of Win 7 forums, now Win 8 where your program is VERY highly rated. I Installed new version  MBAM over existing and all went well, working GREAT. Love the new dashboard. Thanks for honoring your customers lifetime license and to all the staff at MBAM for your hard work :)

I'm a user of the free version and I went back to 1.75. 2.0 is terrible, the scan takes more than twice as long and there is no quick scan any more. The Threat Scan is the one that takes forever. The desktop icon also goes blank after a few boots of the system. The new UI is also terrible with it's constant notices to upgrade.

 

I will keep using 1.75 until v2 is improved.

 

Hi Dch48,

Quick scan has been renamed Threat Scan (More info on scan types here). If you have "Scan for rootkits" enabled (which is a new 2.0 feature), this will add to your average scan time from v.1.75

Just checking - I haven't gotten the new upgrade yet.  But, I'll still need an anti-virus, right?

Absolutely. :)

Hello there, i have a problem with the new version.I've checked ''Scan for rootkits'' and the scan takes forever.It's stuck at this point for like 20 minutes, is it normal or the scan stuck ?

Ok, stucked again..The problem is caused by ''Scan for rootkits'', if i disable that, it scans without problems.

 

OS : Windows 8.1 x64 with Update 1 (#Build 17031 RTM).

Nice version upgrade, thanks.  One question: In 2.0 the rootkit scan option is deselected by default.  When I select it then run a scan, the scan runs just fine. Given that, is there any reason why I should not routinely keep "Scan for rootkits" selected?

It has caused some issues for some users, and it is not as robust a scan as the MBAR product is.

If it does not cause any issues on your computer then you may leave that option enabled. I have it enabled on my computers and it works fine. Also you can enable that option when you schedule a scan in the scheduler.

I have only seen the hang with the Custom Scan. I keep rootkits enabled with Hype and Threat scan with no problems.

Nice job, Not thrilled about the shift to yearly subscriptions

 

I mean i got in under the door by a long shot with that, But it still displeases me (Does anywhere still sell lifetime licenses? I know some physical units and unused codes are out there, And they're going to be limited in stock)
